Decorating with Southern White Rock – the natural choice in landscaping

Southern White Rock can add texture and colour to your garden, while fulfilling a practical purpose for driveways, walkways, paths, drainage and mulch. Whether you’re building a modern, traditional, Japanese, country or Mediterranean garden, the ideas are endless!

Why landscapers and gardeners love Southern White Rock

Southern White Rock is one of the most striking decorative rocks on the market. Here are just some of the reasons it is the top choice of Sydney landscapers and gardeners.

  • Southern White Rock is pure white

Landscaping rocks don’t come more pure than Southern White Rock. Imagine the colour of fresh snow and that’s how white and bright it is. Its colour makes it a perfect contrasting stone in gardens, paths and for border edging.

  • Southern White Rock is decorative ‘aggregate’

Rather than a pebble, Southern White Rock is a decorative ‘aggregate’ or ‘rock’. It is a great alternative to pebbles such as Cowra White and Cowra Gold.

  • Southern White Rock holds its colour

Southern White Rock is a natural stone, not dyed like other landscaping rocks. This means that it holds its colour and resists staining.

  • Southern White Rock is versatile

Southern White Rock is a versatile addition to any residential or commercial landscape. It can be used in concrete instead of ‘blue metal’ to give a better finish and a more natural look.

  • Southern White Rock is locally sourced

Covid-19’s disruption to supply chains has created shortages, backlogs and global delays. Fortunately, Southern White Rock is quarried in New South Wales and is in plentiful supply, therefore not affected by supply chain issues.

  • Southern White Rock offers multiple applications

Available in 20mm and 40mm, Southern White Rock can be ‘milled’ into a powder as calcium carbonate which has multiple uses in the construction industry.

  • Southern White Rock can be used as silica-free sand

The main advantage of ‘milled’ Southern White Rock is that it does not contain silica. Silica dust is harmful when inhaled into the lungs. As it is 100 times smaller than a grain of sand, you can be breathing it in without knowing. Exposure to silica dust can lead to the development of lung cancer, silicosis (anirreversible scarring and stiffening of the lungs), kidney disease and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Southern White Rock as calcium carbonate is the safe choice.
